Location: Cool and Cold Water Aquaculture Research
2010 Annual Report
Specific scopes are:
• To foster the Master of Science Programme at the UNALM, through the scientific training of aquaculture graduate students in the USA. To share USDA/ARS/NCCCWA research expertise in the genetics and genomics of rainbow trout. • To improve the academic and scientific level of the UNALM Aquaculture graduate studies through scientific visits to the La Molina campus, and by presenting an annual scientific seminar in Peru. • To perform field tests on rainbow trout breeding triploid germplasm developed by USDA/ARS/NCCCWA at the Instituto Regional Sierra, Mantaro Valley. • The UNALM Graduate Program in Aquaculture offers to the NCCCWA, all available facilities at the Campus La Molina and Instituto Regional de Sierra, where local trout strains, native species, and any other subject of mutual interest can be tested.
The two institutions will cooperate in scientific research. The details of specific research projects will be determined by mutual agreement of both institutions. The form of cooperation may vary with the goal of each project. Arrangements concerning specific details of financial support of visiting scholars, exchange faculty members, exchange students, and others will be made by individual written agreement applicable to each particular situation.
This agreement was established to develop partnerships that will foster research and education with activities that will positively impact trout aquaculture production. To this end opportunities to field test triploid trout populations created at NCCCWA at sites in Peru are being explored. The ADODR is in frequent contact with the cooperator through phone calls, email, and site visits in addition to receipt of written reports.
